Bermuda Ecosystem – The Leaping  Lemur: My artwork is about animals up close and how they live in the Bermuda trees. When I was taking the picture I was scared that the lemur was going to jump on me because I was so close to it! I had to look at the different angles to take the picture to see where it looked better and how the sun reflected on the animal. I like the background because it was palmetto trees, which are my favorite tree in Bermuda. I also like that the animal was on a sign that tells you about animals. My favorite animal at the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo is the lemur. It usually lives on the island of Madagascar but it now resides on the island of Bermuda. It is happy here with its family of lemurs. And I visit them whenever I can!

Bermuda Ecosystem – I love turtles and this summer I spent A LOT of time on the water, mainly on paddleboard, kayaks and motor boats. Each time I learned a little bit more about Bermuda's ecosystem. Sometimes I went snorkeling in Mangrove Bay and I explored the reefs and saw fish and corals.

Bermuda Homes – I chose this picture because I spent a lot of time at home with my family during the lockdown. It means a lot to me because that is where I live. It is a typical Bermuda home with the traditional white roof. I really, really like my wonderful house. :-)

Bermuda Ecosystem – I went on a kayak to take the photo in Hungry Bay because I want to win 500 dollars. I heard waves crashing on rocks. Why did I choose this photo? It looked cool. This photo reminds me of the dark blue skies. It represents a home for sea creatures.

Bermuda Ecosystem – I took this photo in my grandparents house. When I saw the this plant arraignment on the wall where the pot is made out of some kind of a bark I knew it was a winner. My grandmother is an excellent gardener and she is very proud of her plants.

Bermuda Ecosystem – I chose this photo of a cedar tree because they are endemic to Bermuda and Bermuda is a special place to me because I am endemic to Bermuda too. The Bermuda cedar tree is not found anywhere else and is part of the original Bermuda ecosystem.

Bermuda Ecosystem – This toad’s ecosystem is my front yard. I see this toad every night and it has dug a whole in my yard where he goes in the day. The reason I decided to take this picture was because the toad does not move when I get close to it.

Bermuda Ecosystem – Crystal Caves: The Cave of Wonders. This is a picture of the beautiful stalactites and their wavy reflection in the water at Crystal Caves. It has amazing blue water with the crystal roof of the cave.

Nina Guishard, Warwick Academy
Bermuda Ecosystem – I chose this photo because I think it's interesting and beautiful. I don't know if it has a face and the shell has a lot of details that are pretty and different from other sea creatures. I think it represents that different things can be pretty on the beach too.

A'niyah Bean, Saltus Grammar
Bermuda Homes – I chose this photo because I think the house is really pretty. The house has a balcony, big windows, nice yard and trees which I like. The color of the house matches as well too. I think it represents all the nice big houses that you can see in Bermuda.

Bermuda Homes – "Home Not a House". I captured this photo using a drone, waiting for good weather. I like the roof architecture, Bermudian style shutters and chimneys overlooking Elys Harbour. More importantly, are the seniors living here who worked hard to make Bermuda better. I play piano here, sadly, Covid stopped that.

Seri Fisher, Warwick Academy
Bermuda Ecosystem – I chose this photo because I like lizards and how they can change their colours. This photo reminds me of the walks I take with my parents every Sunday especially to my favorite nature reserve, Spittal Pond. Lizards are a part of Bermuda's ecosystem. They eat mosquitos and flies.

Bermuda Ecosystem – This photo makes me think about Bermuda, my home. I see nature. A big beautiful sunrise where the land meets the sea. I wonder what might be happening on the islands and under the sea!

Bermuda Ecosystem – ''Excreeting Ecosystem'' To take this photograph of a parrot fish I had to visit many places numerous times, wade into the water and wait for the perfect shot of the fish eating coral which helps the ecosystem by cleaning the coral and excreeting sand which makes our beaches.Photography = Patience.

Seri Fisher, Warwick Academy
Bermuda Ecosystem – I chose the grassland ecosystem because it has a great environment and unique animals that I haven’t seen before. They don’t have too much rainfall like the forests, but it is a good spot to live at. In Bermuda, grassy fields feed butterflies and you can see lots of them.

Bermuda Community – 2020 has been a pretty difficult year. I was missing my friends when I had to stay home for many months during the lockdown. Also, there were many different rules in the community. I spent a lot of time playing at home or reading. It was a very different process.

Bermuda Ecosystem – I was lucky to find this octopus on Northshore. An octopus is very difficult to photograph as they change color to blend into their environment. Octopus are a lot smarter than people as they use they adapt to their surroundings and don't destroy it. Having 9 brains and three hearts.

Bermuda Ecosystem – I found this snail in our backyard one morning, and I was fascinated by it. According to Google, snails are important in our ecosystem because they eat vegetation and return the nutrients to the soil.

Ruth Correia, Somerset Primary School
Bermuda Homes – My family moved to this house on Oct. 1st. This house was built in 1820 and is an example of old Bermuda architecture. I feel that this house is beautiful because of the old Bermuda Cedar wooden floors. I love living in this house.

Bermuda Homes – The picture is nice because it shows homes from inside a home. The cloud looks like the sun and this year we had to spend a lot of time at home. The sun is shining after a rainy afternoon.

Bermuda Ecosystem – I was sitting on the dock and rolled this buoy, I saw all these plants and shells growing on it. It was like a little island for a crab. I chose this photo because I like that nature was growing on man made thing.

Matilda Boyce, BHS
Bermuda Ecosystem – I chose this photo because Bermuda is a stunningly beautiful place. This year has been tremendously difficult with Covid but I have learnt to appreciate Bermuda even more. The shimmering ocean and bright sky hold so many diverse, important creatures and this picture represents both the sky and the ocean.

Leyla Crews, BHS
Bermuda Ecosystem – Weekends I have lunch with my Mommy and Nana and we go to different places. One of my favorite is at Whitehorse because you can feed the fish and ducks and sometimes a Parrot Fish. Parrot Fish remind me of Rainbows. Big bright colors and I feel happy.

Keira Whitecross, BHS
Bermuda Ecosystem – My Summer Place Without the oxygen created by our environment we would all be dead. The Ecosystems you can see in my picture are the Sandy Shore, and the Ocean. I picked this picture because it reminds me of the summertime when I was playing with my brother and sister.

Isaac Contreras, Somerset Primary
Bermuda Ecosystem – In my view, the orange rose is special - not a flower you see everyday except for possibly the Botanical Gardens. The ecosystem is important; in the desert the flower would die and in one of the poles it couldn’t take the cold. A semi-tropical island like Bermuda is perfect.

Bermuda Homes – I think that this photo represents the category "Bermuda Homes" well because it shows a white Bermuda roof and chimney, a traditional Bermuda moongate with green vines on it, pretty pink Hibiscus flowers and even the city of Hamilton and Hamilton Harbour in the background. It means Bermuda to me.

Milena Millett, Somersfield Academy
Bermuda Ecosystem – This photo makes me feel peaceful. It makes me grateful for my family, friends and Bermuda. We live in a beautiful place with many other creatures that enjoy the sea. We must keep it safe and clean. Keep Bermuda beautiful

Mason Crews, Somersfield
Bermuda Homes – I chose this photo because I think it is really beautiful with the big palm tree and I love the house with the beautiful background. The water is Harrington Sound which isn’t too far from my house. I love taking pictures because Bermuda is so beautiful and amazing.

Zori Gibbons, Bermuda High School
Bermuda Ecosystem – Artist Statement: I wanted this photograph to make people feel calm and like drifting away from the ground. I took it from high above to make people realize how big we are to little creatures. I want people to feel speechless when they look at my photograph and see the difference between us and the calm sea.

Alyssa Penrose, Bermuda High School
Bermuda Ecosystem – This photo reminds me of cats tails sticking in the air. I think the tops feel soft. I liked how they were swaying in the breeze. Did you know that bamboo grows super fast and could be used to make things?

Lily Ross, Warwick Academy
Bermuda Community – I chose this photo because I like how the man is growing food to feed his family and the garden is being watched over by the Lighthouse. So it is like the lighthouse is the guardian of the community.
